BACKGROUND Early detection of acute tubular necrosis (ATN) could permit implementation of salvage therapies and improve patient outcomes in acute renal failure (ARF). The utility of single and combined measurements of urinary tubular enzymes in predicting ARF in critically ill patients has not been evaluated using the receiver-operating characteristic (ROC) plot method. METHODS In this prospective pilot study, 26 consecutive critically ill adult patients admitted to the intensive-care unit… CONTINUE READING
